Happy Friday Eve all. Welcome to another party here at The Answer Is Chocolate.
Happy to say we have found a place of our own here in Arizona and looking forward to having my own creative space once again in the not too distant future. Not only that but it is a blank slate that I will be able to play with and probably have more ideas in my head than I'll have time for!
Let's see some ideas from last week's party!
Let's start with these fab yard sale finds, made over into these gorgeous chairs from Artsy Va Va. The combination of chalk paint and image transfers is a winning combination!
Next up is also a chair makeover just not the way you'd think. Lisa from Fresh Vintage By Lisa S found a curbside freecycle chair that wasn't usable as a chair. Being resourceful, she broke it down and used the salvageable parts to make TWO great projects, the first one the business card holder shown above.
She used another piece to make this background for a bud vase holder. And she has pieces left over for more ideas!
With 4th of July approaching, these Patriotic Swirl cookies from Family Cookie Recipes would be a wonderful addition to any picnic basket or dessert table.

Happy Friday Eve all. Hope you all have had a great week and looking forward to a festive Father's Day weekend! As always while I'm on limited craft time, I enjoy looking at your creations each week so here are a few ideas from last week's party!
Really loving this Milking Stool Makeover from The Painted Hinge ! Michelle is even sharing the printable she used for the image transfer.
I also really love this Re-Purposed Wood Garden Caddy that was shared by Lisa at Fresh Vintage By Lisa S . She got the stenciling PERFECT!
I love a good knockoff and this Tobacco Basket from Our Hopeful Home is a great version of one inspired by Ballard Designs.
Finally, with Fourth of July quickly approaching I love the festive simplicity of these Red White and Blue Cookies from Butter With a Side of Bread. Two colors of chocolate melts and the gold stars really take these store bought cookies to a new level!
OK let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve all ! Why can't the weekend be 5 days and the week 2? More wondeful ideas from last week's party and you all continue to keep me inspired while I'm not as able to make things right now. Let's see a few!
My old house in WA had lots of lavender bushes. I wish I'd thought to make anything as lovely as these Scrap Wood Drying Racks like these from Faeries and Fauna!
Totally in love with these Rustic Farmhouse Laundry Room Ideas from Follow The Yellow Brick Home. Definitely want to do something like this in my next home.
With Summer fast approaching, nothing is more perfect than popsicles. Domestic Deadline has got every flavor combination covered with 14 Homemade Popsicle Recipes!
Finally, how delicious does this Cheesecake with Ganache and Berries look?! From Butter With a Side of Bread ( which is totally how you should eat bread lol) .

Happy Friday Eve and welcome to another link party! Can you believe it's June tomorrow? I can't! Here are some features from last week's party.
With Summer right around the corner garden parties and Summer entertaining are on the menu. Take things up a notch with this gorgeous Rose and Lavender Ice Bucket from Satsoma Designs.
Also great for outside decorating is this Weathered Galvanized Bucket idea from Fluster Bluster.
If you want to switch things up inside, how about changing up some light switch covers like this Steampunk idea from Surviving A Teacher's Salary.
Finally, with Summer on the horizon, so are lots of Farmer's Markets, flea markets etc. and you can always use another bag. See what Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S did to transform these basic burlap bags from the the 99 Cent Store.
Now let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve and welcome to another link up. As always, thanks for choosing to share your creativity here! Here are some great ideas from last week's party.
I love a good no sew project and especially when it comes to pillows. Changing throw pillows can change the whole feel of a room. These from Repurpose and Upcycle are perfect!
Floating frames are so ethereal but can get pricey. Faeries and Fauna shared how to make your own using a repurposed frame.
With hand lettering , coloring and doodling being so popular, buying sketchbooks to fill can add up. Hazel and Gold Designs shows how you can make your own. Great to keep or give as gifts!
Finally, with yesterday being "National Iced Coffee Day" this Greek Frappe from All That's Jas would have been the perfect treat. Given how fueled I am by coffee, this is definitely on my to make list!
Now, let's see what you've been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve all! Hope you've had a good week and all who celebrated had a wonderful Mother's Day!
Here are a few features from last week's party and as usual can't wait to see what everyone's been up to this week !
Sometimes I buy a new creative tool and use it right away. Other times it sits in the package but I know I have it when I am inspired to use it. Such is the case with a woodburning tool I have and this gorgeous DIY Wood Art from Hazel and Gold Designs may just have given me the inspiration to break that bad boy out! Hers was one item in a challenge, all of which you can see at the link. Some VERY cool ideas!!
Wouldn't that DIY Wood Burned Art look great in this Boho Themed Guest Room? See Little Brags for the before and after and I adore the after!!
Or maybe you're making over an office ( or putting a desk in your made over guest room). This Chalk Painted Desk & Chair makeover from Repurpose and Upcycle is another must see before and after!
Finally, I love cinnamon rolls. Muffins? OK. Donuts, take them or leave them. But cinnamon rolls? Oh yes. Check out these from Lamberts Lately made in an InstaPot!!! I have not tried baking or making desserts in mine yet so these may be the first I try!
OK! Time to party :)
